Happy Meal Shows No Decay After One Year On A Shelf

Of course we all know fast food is gross. There’s the greasiness, the saturated fat, the unholy mass of calories just waiting to glom onto your thighs and live there forever and ever having little fat babies. Plus, what is that stuff even made of? We don’t know. But we do know it’s far worse than we ever imagined. Joanne Bruso, the author of Baby Bites: Transforming a Picky Eater into a Healthy Eater, has been documenting the life of a Happy Meal. She bought it last year. It’s turned one. And it is still doing fine. Look at it! It still looks the same! The french fries are as perfectly formed as the little plastic toy! That is wrong, wrong, wrong. Thinking back over the Happy Meals I happily ate as a child, I am afraid. [BoingBoing]
